** Cloudstar was the leader of [=SkyClan=] when they were driven out by the other four Clans in ancient times. In response to this, he renounces [=StarClan=], saying that the spirits of their ancestors aren't worth worshipping if they allow Twolegs to destroy their territory and do nothing to help.

* ''LetsPlay/KnudKnytlingPrinceOfDenmark''. His descendants too, but Knud himself has the most hilariously passive-aggressive way of expressing it.

* In Creator/CharlesStross's ''Literature/TheLaundrySeries'', Bob is fully aware of the existence of at least [[CosmicHorror one being]] he deems "indistinguishable from God". As of ''The Fuller Memorandum'', he is awaiting his God's return to Earth... with a shotgun. There's also a bit in ''The Jennifer Morgue'' where a fellow agent points out that while Bob may not believe in God, he certainly believes in Hell (as he's had extensive dealings with informational entities from other universes that could easily be classified as demons).

** The Foundation itself can be considered nay-theists if one takes the viewpoint of the Church of the Broken God. They keep the god's "heart" under lock and key and want it to stay there for all eternity.

** The Foundation itself can be considered nay-theists if one takes the viewpoint of the Church of the Broken God. They keep the god's "heart" keeps several important figures and artifacts from just about every major world religion under lock and key key, but nowhere in their documents does the Foundation actually ''identify'' them as those important figures and/or artifacts, even when doing so might lend context to their anomalous natures. From the Foundation's point of view, there's no guarantee that these things are really what they claim to be, and want it to stay there making assumptions about these inherently unpredictable and ''incredibly dangerous'' objects is a recipe for all eternity.disaster.
